Annotation

Written in 1939. This is Heinlein’s first novel, which was rejected by publishers at the time and thought lost. Libertarian eutopia with clear divisions between what is in the public and private spheres and a system of social credit or “heritage checks” that provides everyone a basic guaranteed income. Many technological advances, some of which Heinlein used later.
